Moto GP rider and Inter fan Valentino Rossi has questioned the market moves of his beloved Nerazzurri.
While watching the Beneamata’s shock 1-0 home loss to Novara on Sunday, he tweeted numerous messages.
“Why did we sell Thiago Motta?” he wrote after the Brazilian-born Italian international was allowed to join Paris Saint-Germain last month.
He also raised doubts over how wise it was to let go of Samuel Eto’o to Anzhi last summer.
“The decision to replace Eto’o with Diego Forlan was like the one to get rid of Roberto Carlos for Alessandro Pistone.”
Despite the loss, Rossi seemingly didn’t lose his sense of humour.
“Oh, I understand. Those playing in white are Real Madrid, not Novara.”
While at the end of the game, he stated: “I wouldn’t want to be Massimo Moratti’s ashtray this evening.”
Inter have had a dreadful start to the second half of the campaign after suffering losses to Lecce, Roma and Novara.
Their only point from the last 12 on offer came in the 4-4 home draw with Palermo.
